An Australian War Memorial touring exhibition
Stella Bowen: art, love & war is the first retrospective of the work of expatriate Australian artist Stella Bowen. Featuring seventy-two works spanning over forty years, the exhibition brings together works from the Australian War Memorial collection and private collections throughout Australia, Britain, and the United States. Stella Bowen’s career took her from Adelaide to London and Paris. Towards the end of her career she was appointed an official RAAF war artist. This exhibition includes works from her earlier bohemian period, as well as her later, and better-known, wartime paintings.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
